gtk-qt-engine


Hello, all
I had installed kde-3.5.1 recently through compilation of source code. As I dislike the gtk-style appearance of gtk apps, I, the same, compile and install gtk-qt-engine.
It doesn't change the gtk apps style at all, but, however, it did work for my mandriva box. Any suggestions? Thanks.

You have to change your ~/.gtkrc* to use the new engine.

Sorry, I don't know what you exactly mean. Might you say it in more details? Thanks.

In my home dir the file is
.gtkrc-1.2-gnome2
You can add
include "/home/user/.themes/qt-gtk/gtk/gtkrc"
Of course the above path needs to point to the actual gtkrc file
If you installed it from a deb, it is probably in /usr/share/themes, otherwise look in ~/.themes
